Hillary Clinton argued yesterday that Mueller’s report clearly shows that Trump obstructed justice during the Russia investigation.
“If you take the time to read the Mueller report, actually read it … you come to two inescapable conclusions,” she said while speaking at her alma mater Wellesley College.
Those conclusions, she said, were that Russia conducted a “sweeping” attempt to interfere in the 2016 election and that “obstruction of justice occurred.” “You cannot read the report, chapter and verse, fact after fact, without reaching those conclusions,” she said, according to a video posted by The Hill.
Even though Hillary Clinton constantly stated that its because of Russia that she lost the 2016 election, this is the first time that she said that Mueller report showed obstruction of justice.
During a presser in May, Mueller stopped short of exonerating Trump of that allegation. However, he refused to prosecute Trump because of a DOJ rule that indicates that you can’t charge a sitting president.
After the report was released, Trump’s campaign immediately argued that the report exonerated Trump. However, by giving authority to AG William Barr to investigate the origins into the Russia probe, the Democrats have doubled their calls for impeachment.
